Tournament *completely OT and irrelevant*

How do you pronounce the word in the title?

I say it tore-na-ment.  My "o" might be a little over pronounced because I'm  from NJ,. 

It has been brought to my attention several times by native Washingtonians that I say it weird.  They pronounce it ter-na-ment.

I say it ter-na-ment as well. Maybe that's how west coasters say it, as I'm from CA. I've heard it pronounced both ways though.

It's tor-na-ment!  The East coast is always right, right?  Anyway, that's how they pronounce it for the Tournament of Roses parade.
